The alt-metal band's ninth album will arrive on September 25th
There are so many bands out there doing so many interesting things, it's hard to know where to turn. That's why we've created Crash Course , a recurring feature offering a concise introduction to a band or artist that we think slays, covering their origins, process and vision, as well as tour hijinks and crazy shows. Our latest subject is Thirty Nights of Violence yes, their name is taken from a Deftones lyric , a Nashville group hailing from the same metalcore scene as rising heavy-hitters Chamber and Orthodox.

Deftones were one of the first groups to alternate heavy riffs and screamed vocals with more ethereal music and hushed singing -- spawning a fair amount of imitators in their wake. The group first formed in Sacramento, California during , when then high-school students Stephen Carpenter guitar , Abe Cunningham drums , and Chino Moreno vocals first began to jam together. They chose the name Deftones and began playing out locally shortly thereafter, going through several different bass players before finding a permanent bassist in the form of Chi Cheng. Although the group was more heavy metal-based early on, the early '90s saw Deftones expand their sound even further, inspired by such groundbreakers as Tool, Rage Against the Machine, and Faith No More. A strong four-song demo was completed soon after, and it landed the group a recording contract with Madonna's label, Maverick.
